MEET YOUR FACULTY

While in high school, Department Head Skylar Webb apprenticed with Sturm Automotive. After graduation, he attended Phoenix’s  Arizona Automotive Institute, where he became a factory-trained Ford technician and graduated as valedictorian with an Associate’s degree. 

Skylar has been ASE Master Certified since 2007, and has worked at dealerships, independent shops and fleet operations, like U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. He joined Pima in 2010. 

Favorite car? Ferrari 575 Maranello - the kind of sexy GT car Aston Martin would make if they weren't so painfully British.
